FLORIDA PREDICTED LANDING SPOT FOR ZAIRE

In his prediction of where five top grad-transfers land, Woody Wommack named Florida as the team that will land quarterback Malik Zaire.

With limited scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, Zaire could be a perfect fit in Gainesville until some of the school’s younger options are ready to play.

THREE-POINT STANCE: CLEMENT SEEN AS A BIG CATCH FOR FLORIDA

In his Three-Point Stance, Rivals National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell shares his take on newest Florida commit - four-star Iverson Clement: "Florida needs to upgrade speed and playmaking ability in the offensive backfield and Clement has the potential to help that. He can not only make people miss but he can catch the ball and works well in space. He hasn’t been utilized that much in the passing game in high school but watch out in college, he has the ability to be a multi-faceted weapon."
